Saraki defiant amid reported trial

18 September 2015, 10:09

Abuja -  President, Bukola Saraki, has dismissed alleged corruption charges against him.

He said such moves were a ploy to undermine him.

A charge sheet has circulated online suggesting the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) aimed to try him.

Saraki said the claims contained in the charge sheet were “false, “incorrect” and “untrue” as he had consistently declared his assets as required by law at every point before resuming any political office.

“It is surprising that the alleged charges are now referring his asset declaration made in 2003 while in office as Governor of Kwara State to formulate their charges. They therefore ignored the recent declaration for which they last week issued an acknowledgement,” Saraki said.

He said the plot was “an outright fabrication and mischief which would not and could stand the test of justice.”

“It is simply a pure malicious and politically motivated prosecution aimed at undermining the person and office of the Senate President and those behind this plot will definitely meet Dr. Saraki in court as this case which is based on outright fabrication and mischief will not and cannot stand the test of justice,” he said.

He nonetheless affirmed his belief in the justice system.
